Coronavirus Disease 2019
Who should get tested?
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested regardless of vaccination status. If you are a close contact* of someone who has COVID-19, you should get tested. If you are vaccinated and have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, the CDC currently recommends that you get tested 3-5 days after exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. If you are not sure whether you should get tested, you can use one of these self-check tools to help you decide.
* Close Contact: Within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period

What should I do after I get tested?
While you wait for your COVID-19 test results, continue to take steps to keep yourself and others safe. Follow recommendations to self-isolate and self-monitor in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19. If you are vaccinated and do not have symptoms, you do not need to quarantine, but you should wear a mask in public for 14 days or until your test result is negative. If your test result is positive, you should follow the current recommendations for isolation regardless of vaccination status.
